lyrics

Try to find your eyes,
But I can't see that straight this late at night
And I have driven myself blind
By looking for Alaska all the time-
Every day her bones are colder.

Trap myself in sound,
One last look before I forget how.
If I could only move my mouth,
I'd like to ask you what you dream about
When you're sleeping on his shoulder.

You stare and you stray,
I stumble and sway and wander away.
I'd ask you to stay and tell me what's changed,
Though I've been ashamed, estranged and enraged
With nothing to say. At the end of the day,
I still want you all the same.

Spend summer thinking all alone,
Become a single, silent ghost. This coast is home,
The wind and waves wear at my bones
Until each joint is still and old.
Remember when the days were longer?

You stare and you stray,
I stumble and sway and wander away.
I'd ask you to stay and tell me what's changed,
Though I've been ashamed, estranged and enraged
With nothing to say. At the end of the day,
I still want you all the same.
